I have Custom Metadata Records, the Type being in an unlocked package, which I want to add to an Outbound Change Set. I have all Custom Metadata Types enabled for my Profile (even necessary?), but still can't see the Records I am looking for. I can see other Custom Metadata Records in form of "CustomRecordType [package]", but not the ones I want to deploy.

Is there a setting I am missing? Visibility is set to public.

  • According to the metadata coverage report you should be able to include custom metadata. I wonder if it is because the custom metadata type is from an unlocked package that you can't see the records from it...

  • Yes, the thing I don't understand is, why I see other metadata records, which are also in an unpackaged metadata type.

  • Could the problem be due to the unlocked package newly installed on the current org (I'm guessing it is a sandbox) and not already installed on the org from which the sandbox was created? (Grasping at straws here.)

1 Answer 1


The problem was the labelling. I already had a Custom Metadata Type with the same label and namespace prefix. Changing the label of one of the Types resolved the issue.
